Creating Candidate Records with Scottish Candidate Number on SOLAR

Centres must include the Scottish Candidate Number (SCN) when creating candidates on SOLAR.

If the SCN is not entered in the candidate reference field, the system will generate an automated number. The automated number is not valid for verification or certification purposes.

Candidates with automated numbers in the candidate reference field have been retired from SOLAR to avoid issues with verification and certification. Centres will need to upload these candidates again with the correct SCN.

Guides to uploading candidates on SOLAR are available here.
